Someone recently posed questions from my last blog post, Rise Above The Noise. They were struggling to innerstand my reasons for guiding people to detach from the 3D world and focus on your own higher ascension out of the grid. And from a perspective, this can seem cold and a bit selfish. Are we not here to assist the collective and rebuild a better world for all to live in? Indeed, my message is very different from other light workers who are talking about clearing out all old energies and creating a paradise on earth. So I felt it important to elaborate on this from a broader point of view.
3D Earth in an extraordinary learning school, and this is due to the duality. That word has earned an ugly reputation, and it simply isn’t fair. Duality is the stage for self discovery. If I want to buy land in the country and plant a vegetable garden, and you want to live on the ocean and get your food from the sea, this is duality. It is through these options and choices that we get to define who we are, and what brings us pleasure. I can see from this duality how you and I have different needs. And by choosing one locale over another, it sets into motion different events for each person to overcome. These experiences further help us to have a greater innerstanding of who we are, and what we are capable of. For instance, there could be a drought on my land for a few years, causing my food source to falter. How would I handle this situation? What will I learn from this experience? Or the person living on the ocean gets hit with a hurricane, and looses their home. Does that mean they were foolish to live on the ocean? How many beautiful perfect days did they get to enjoy before the hurricane? One trial does not equate to a bad life or a bad choice. It’s simply an experience, which is a treasure, and how you choose to let it define you, steer you, or change you is the real focal point.
And so, when I hear light workers and spiritual leaders talk about how there is no duality in the higher realms, and 5D will be paradise, I shake my head in amusement. There are 144 dimensions, and duality in each one. This duality sets the table for our own growth. And you cannot have authentic God realized ascension without spiritual growth. It is the experiences in our life that we grow and learn from. With each experience, we get to choose to slide up or down the vibrational scale in our response.
To try to clear the world of this duality is pure ego. You may no longer need a certain experience in your life, because you have learned the lesson, but someone else may still need that experience to learn from. Therefore, you cannot save them from the lesson, or remove the lesson from the planet by labeling it as “bad” or “evil”. And this is what many light workers cannot see through the lens of their own ego. Now grant you, on the scale of what we judge as “good” and “bad”, there are great extremes, and it is easy to say “that should not be and it must be fixed or removed from our reality”. But some of us need those absolute extremes to trigger our own awakening.
Consider if you will the woman who is married to a man who uses intimidation and manipulation to hide his addictions. She has the choice to continue to be a slave and victim to this relationship, which will continue to spiral out of control, or tear off her blinders and see this person for who and what he is. This is the catalyst of her awakening. She taps into strength and powers she didn’t know she had in order to break away, ultimately forging her into an absolute badass powerhouse who knows her worth. She sees her own evolution, and honors that she would not be the confident woman she is today had it not been for that relationship. So many lessons were learned.
But now, as this woman witnesses other’s in the same situation she was once in, perhaps with the same ex-husband, she may wish to save the other woman the pain and heartache she once endured. She sees the woman as young and naive, just as she once was, and desperately wants to warn her about who and what this man is. But to do so would be to deprive the young woman of the lessons she needs to learn. She will not have the opportunity to use this relationship to step into her full power and overcome being controlled and manipulated by another. You see, we choose to be with people who will help us learn these lessons. They are contracted to play a role in our lives to help us learn and grow. Even if she did heed the warning, and break off the relationship, she’d probably find herself in another relationship with another person exactly like that one. Would you deny this woman the experience she needs so that she too can be a beautiful powerhouse of self worth?
So, when we look at all that is happening around us on a global scale, we can see where what we would label as “crimes against humanity” are perhaps put into place to help you awaken. Did the poisoning of our food and waters force you to see the world in a new light, and teach you to learn discernment? Did you learn you could not trust your government and corporations to look out for our best interests? Did this cause you to take an active role in researching what you ate and drank, and ultimately taught you to listen to your body and your higher self? Wonderful! This is a part of awakening! But until all of humanity has awakened to this and takes action, it continues to serve as an awakening tool for the collective, one person at a time.
At this point, it is important to note that a very large portion of the collective has not yet chosen awakening and ascension. Therefore, there will continue to be extreme conditions in place to give others an opportunity to rise above, should they choose. Awakening and ascension cannot be forced on any soul, and some may never choose to raise their vibration. We, the light workers, assist the collective, not by removing the “negative” energies and elements of 3D and 4D, but by raising our own vibration, and seeking our own ascension out of the matrix. By raising your vibration, others have an opportunity to entrain with you. This means you quite literally raise their vibration just by being you. And by focusing on your own mastery, sovereignty, and ascension out of the matrix, you create a wake for others to easily follow. You create the template, the road map. You are leaving bread crumbs for those souls to follow in your footsteps. So you see, it is not out of selfishness that we say “focus on you”, but because we know the power you hold by being the way shower.
This duality occurs in all dimensions between here and Source, creating the stage for the ascension of the souls in these dimensions to higher dimensions, and ultimately mastery of sovereignty. It is naive and foolish to believe that you will not face opposition in 5D, 6D, 7D, and so on. To believe there is not opposition to your ascension at the higher levels is to put yourself in the cross fires. I do not say this to instill fear in you, but to help you realize that just because a being is from a higher dimension, it does not mean that is has your best interests at heart.
At this point, as stay at home orders are lifted, and people start to return to the world after months of thinking, growing, or falling behind, we may witness great changes around us. Some changes will seem like things are getting better as a society, and that perhaps we are moving as one into 5D. Do not let this fool you. Things may appear better, but at what cost? What cost to liberty and freedoms? Each choice aligns you with different realities. Choose higher. Choose self sovereignty and mastery.

Are you on any "spiritual" Facebook groups? When you joined these groups, you probably thought it was going to be a platform for unity consciousness. But then you started seeing members tearing each other apart in the comments sections like a pack of hungry wolves.
The reason is there are many agendas out there by many different factions. They whisper in light workers ears, with promises and visions. Distorted frequencies are constantly being directed at us. As your higher self team sends down frequencies to raise your vibration and help keep you on the path your soul has chosen, five other factions send down their own frequencies at the same time. This creates confusion, and you are left trying to figure out a mosh pit of information that may or may not be your truth.
Many light workers are currently focused on ascension. The different factions whisper the promise of ascension to 5D in their ear, and it sounds so wonderful. This is what you are here for! To help humanity move up in vibration! They cannot see that they are being used and misguided. Yes, these beings may be assisting you to arrive some place that looks like 5D, but that's as far as you go. And this suits their agenda perfectly. Because the space that they are trying to lead you to is still within this matrix (under the 12D grid). You see, they don't want you to leave this matrix. You are food to them. And for some lower beings that want ascension without spiritual evolution, they are attaching themselves to light workers in order to hitch a ride up. But these lower beings are not sanctioned for higher ascension, and cannot leave this matrix. So if one is attaching itself to you, you can only go so high.
Not all ascension messages are meant to help you activate to your full potential. This is why we urge you to go higher. We urge you to rise above the collective, Yes, rise above even the light worker collective. What's the use to waking up and realizing the nature of the matrix you are in, then not try to exit the matrix?
Do you know how long your soul has been trapped here? We're not seeking to make earth a better place. We are seeking our own personal spiritual evolution, and our own higher ascension out. And this is what pits light workers against each other, even if they don't real-eyes the reason for the rift. They have their belief system firmly in place, and like many others, they do not want to hear that they are being used or intentionally limited.
You must be like the eagle, rising above the noise and chatter. You must raise your vibration up to meet your Higher Self as an energetic match, rather than asking your Higher Self to come down to you.
You must be able to squeeze through the eye of the needle. This means shedding all that is not of you, stripping down to your purist form. You cannot bring your attachments with you. You cannot bring others with you. And if you are squeezing through the eye of the needle, what do you care about the state of the world you are leaving behind? You see, while light workers are distracted believing they are clearing negative energy off the 3D planet to bring it up to 5D, they lost sight of the needle they must squeeze through to get up and out.
These concepts may be hard for some to inner-stand. It means letting go of so many beliefs you have held up to now. It requires you to massively shift and change where you have been focusing you energies.
To learn more, I would invite you to begin your own journey via a Marconics class.
But regardless if you choose the assistance of Marconics or not, I urge you to focus on higher ascension and forging your own relationship with your Higher Self and I Am at Source.

Here goes. Nothing plays out on this large of a scale without there being other stuff happening in the background, treating the situation as camouflage. Yes, something smells fishy, and it's not the Chinese fish market. This major distraction is a cover up.
There are different conspiracy theories out there. You've probably listened to some videos, or have done some research, and found one that resonates with you. Have you chosen your flavor? Is it Q, or 5G? Perhaps you’re tapping into a little from each sandbox. Or maybe you think the conspiracies are all horse shit.
The truth is, there are many factions, seen and unseen, that are using this stage that has been set for their own agenda. It would boggle your mind to see the twisted ball of things playing out here. What is important to remember is that when you align with a particular conspiracy theory, you become aligned with a timeline, and how everything will play out on that timeline. It becomes your now, and you are subject to the outcome. This feels awfully foolish to me when you don't know all that is hidden. Further more, just because someone presents me with option A, B, or C, doesn't mean that there aren't more options available to choose from.
At times like this, it is best to keep reaching for alignment with your Higher Self and I Am at Source. Align with the the divine will within your heart space, not the conspiracy theory.
Be the observer of how all is playing out, as even light workers are being manipulated and fighting amongst each other. Do not rely on your leaders for protection or guidance. You must learn to think for yourself.
But here's the catch. You do not want to be swept up into something by your lack of making a decision or clear declaration. So while everything is murky and unclear, you can make clear statements about what you do not consent to. For instance:
I DO NOT CONSENT TO IMPLANTS, DEVICES, OR BOT TAGGERS BEING PLACED IN MY BODY.
I DO NOT CONSENT TO GENE OR DNA MUTATION OR EXPERIMENTATION.
I DO NOT CONSENT TO BEING POISONED.
I DO NOT CONSENT TO MY BODY BEING USED BY ANY OTHER.
I DO NOT CONSENT TO MY ENERGY, CONSCIOUSNESS, OR DNA BEING SYPHONED.
I DO NOT CONSENT TO ANY BEING ATTACHING ITSELF TO ME.
I DO NOT CONSENT TO MY FREE WILL OR INDEPENDENCE BEING REVOKED.
I DO NOT CONSENT TO BEING UNDER THE CONTROL OF ANOTHER.
I DO NOT CONSENT TO FORCED VACCINATIONS.
There are many other things I can list here, but I'd rather see below in the comments that which you will not consent to.
As a final word, do not sink into fear. Banish it from you and stand in your sovereign god power. Fear lowers your vibration, which lowers your shields, and makes you a possible target to be a victim of what is happening around you.
You are a mighty warrior. If you choose to fight, make sure you know who and what you are fighting for.

In the Marconic energy classes, we talk a lot about misplaced compassion, detachment, and observation. These are extremely important lessons for Light Workers and those on the ascension path, especially as you look around and see all that is happening in the world.
Recently, while sitting near the ocean in Marco Island, I was given a great example of these lessons. The group I was with had lunch served to us on the beach. Seagulls swarmed the area, waiting for their moment to feast on our leftovers. I watched as one found a meaty morsel, and was immediately pounced upon by four other seagulls in a effort to steal that which he worked so hard to find. The defending bird seemed to fly in many directions all at once in an attempt to shake off the other gulls. Eventually, only one aggressive gull remained, and he seemed to be twice the size of his adversary.
The two put up quite a struggle, and I had a moment of pity for the defending seagull. I felt as if he was being bullied and attacked. I was definitely projecting my own moments in life on this bird, when I felt picked on by others. I wanted to go help this bird, and shoo away the bigger bully. And then I had a moment of clarity and realized that the defending seagull was the same species as those greedy attacking birds. He too would be trying to steal food from another seagull, or from any species of animal he thought he could steal from. He did not feel as if he was being picked on, nor did he feel as if he was a bully when he was clever enough to steal something away from another bird. They were all just being that which they are. Birds will be birds.
Let that sink in for a moment. They were all just being that which they are. There is no reason for me to step in and defend this bird or help it. To do so would be misplaced compassion. I was just the observer, detached from the outcome. Being detached from the outcome means not being emotionally effected by whether that bird got to enjoy his hard fought for meal, or if another ate that day. This was their interaction, not mine. But as the observer, I was able to pay attention to the thoughts, feelings, and instincts that arose within me, and learn from it.
Now, had I seen two little boys attacking the bird and trying the tear it's wings off purely for their own delight, I would have stepped in to free the bird. You see, as a Light Worker, you must learn discernment. I see two birds fighting over food, they are playing the only role they know. I see two boys hurting an animal, I step in as the destroyer/protector. When I see two nations attempt to destroy each other, I watch with detachment as they play out their roles.
But let's go one step further. What about the friend or family member who's life seems to be falling down around them? It is not your job to be their savior! By trying to help them "fix" the problem, you may be depriving them of their own experience and opportunity to grow and learn. After all, they created that reality so they could learn, although to others and themselves it may seemed to have "happened to them". The lesson will just have to play out all over again until they learn it for themselves and others stop stepping in to correct it for them.
As humans, we are capable of immense compassion and love. That compassion can be used to manipulate us. Or our misplaced compassion could stunt another's growth. Discernment is key; knowing when to be the observer, and when to be the warrior. It is important not to project your own experiences or feelings into another's situation. Know that much of what we do is all part of roles we were contracted to play out in others life’s to clear karma for them or ourselves, or trigger someone's learning through experience.

When I say the word ascension, some people may immediately shut down and tune out. That word has too much of a New Age feel to them, something they cannot relate to. So, let’s set that word aside for the time being, and instead speak of transformation.
When we talk about transformation, most people only feel comfortable scratching the surface. Perhaps they’ll cut sugar out of their diet, or paint their house a new color. I always pay attention to the transformation happening within a woman when she chops off her hair or does something drastic with her external appearance. She is expressing to the outside world the change that is happening within her. She looks in the mirror and says “I am not the same person, I do not recognize the person in the mirror anymore.” And so calls her hair salon to make an appointment, or in some cases, her tattoo artist. This is a perfect expression of the internal change being reflected by the external change.
The fun thing is, it works both ways. You can kick the internal transformation into gear by creating changes in the world around you. It may start with clearing out your closet. This creates a wave of momentum, and if you allow it to flow without fear of throwing out something you will miss, then you may then find yourself tackling that bookshelf, or desk draw, or garage. As you externally shed these material items that have weighed you down, for the possession and ownership of each material object in your house requires an energetic place holder within you, you begin the clear your energy field and allow movement and change within your psyche.
Much of what we hold onto we do so out of fear. How often have you found yourself keeping a cardboard box, just in case. Or that stash of plastic to-go utensils in your kitchen draw, just in case. Let’s consider those words “just in case”. What it quite literally translates to is: I may need this in the future, and may not have the means (financially or otherwise) to reacquire it. There is a fear of lack. But there are so many different fears that keep us stagnant. Fear of failure, fear of poverty, fear of discomfort, fear of loss of social status, fear of loneliness or isolation, fear of uncertainty or change itself.
The people I feel saddest for are the ones who say “I can’t because…” to every solution provided for them. They are truly stuck, because they have been playing that programming over and over again in their words and beliefs. And these are the people who seem to be the most desperate for change. You can offer them a thousand suggestions and avenues to make their dreams come true, and they will respond to each one with “I can’t because…”. They will never be able to rise above. Lateral steps is the best they can hope for. You could give them $100K, and still, nothing will change for them.
The reactions from other people towards the extreme lifestyle change my husband and I have made has been rather fascinating. There are those that look at it very disapprovingly. They feel we have made a poor choice by not embracing the American dream of owning a home, corporate career, community roots. You can see how they are so trapped within the matrix, that they can never hope to escape. But that’s okay. They are perfectly happy, as far as they know. To them, everything about our actions and reasons seem quite absurd.
Then there are those who look at what we have done with longing in their hearts and eyes. They see the freedom, the liberation. They admire our bravery, and silently say “If only we could”, or “If only my spouse would agree to this”, or “Someday, maybe.” This is the most common response, and I often wonder if they really want to live in an RV, or if it’s the casting off of chains and finding their own path that they really crave. Because you see, it is not about the novelty of living in an RV, nor is it the ability to travel and see much of what this world has to offer. It really is about freeing yourself from all the rules that society has placed upon you. And once you free yourself externally from these programs and beliefs and rules, you begin to experience true internal liberation for the first time. And it is from this space that you discover the real you.
But it is the rare and brave souls who say “I can do that!” and dig deep to create that change in their lives. Some will quit their corporate jobs and turn every aspect of their life on its head. They seek another path. They allow themselves to be as water, flowing and searching out a new place to run free, not bound by man. I am immensely proud of my friends Tom and Teri. They have undergone a massive clearing as they too have sold their home and most of their possessions. They will be moving into their RV full time in less than 2 weeks. We are beyond excited for them. Not because they are following in our footsteps, but because they are following their heart’s desire. The process of making the decision, setting it into action, and purging your personal possessions at that level creates deep changes within you. They are shedding, releasing, and healing so much within them as they go through this process. It has created space within them to discover more about themselves and live freely. And by living freely, they will experience even more changes within themselves, and how they view and see the world.
Now, we are not telling you that you must change, or how you should go about it. But change is the side effect of growth and expansion. Change is where new adventures await. Change is where you discover more of you. Change is a symptom of living free. There are those who enjoy change as they enjoy a kiddie pool, only going in up to their ankles. And there are those who seek change by jumping off a high dive into a vast ocean of possibilities. But you cannot fully experience change if you are trying to keep one foot on the ground, and one in the puddle.
Change for you. To hell with what others think.

Do you remember those old school ice cube trays? You'd fill them with water, and insert the lever, and place them in the freezer. A few hours later you have a frozen block of ice. You'd then grab that lever and give it a crank back. The ice would break into more manageable pieces as shards of ice fly in all directions. It may not be pretty, but it was quicker and more effective than using an ice pick and violently jabbing at a frozen block of ice.
In so many ways, we have done the same thing with our traumas, only we're too afraid to pull the lever. Lifetimes of trauma, karma, programming, and cellular memory get packed away in that ice cube tray, and shoved into the freezer to become a solidified, petrified mass. Out of sight, out of mind. But we still carry the weight and repercussions of it. We just can no longer identify how these once isolated incidents continue to effect us.
The prospect of cracking open that ice and facing all that you have been ignoring for so long can be daunting. There is so much fear around the thought of facing your pain. If you give that lever a hard yank, what chaos will it create in your life? After all, you managed to keep your life together thus far by shoving a lot of stuff into that freezer. And you are so certain that the only way you can heal is if you face everything you ever put in that freezer over many lifetimes. That's a large task, and too much to ask. And so, you keep piling on, and nothing changes.
I see this so strongly when I talk to people about Marconic Energy. In particular, the Chakra Integration and Quantum Recalibration are designed to break up that massive block of ice you created. When you do this, the clearing creates swift change in your life. But people are so scared of what will be released, and scared of the change.
First, let's look at the release. The Unified Chakra Integration releases up to 51% of your karma, and along with it much of your programming, imprints, traumas, and cellular memory. It's a massive purge. Like pulling back that lever and large chunks of ice fly right off. You were so certain you had to face or relive each of those traumas, and then realize that there was no need. They are just gone. You feel so much lighter, more free. Now what's left in that tray is more manageable, easier to deal with. Don't put that tray back in the dark freezer now! Everything must come to the light for healing. Be relentless in facing your shit! It's so much easier once the bulk of what you have been unnecessarily holding on to is gone.
Now let's look at the change. People are so scared of this word. They allow "what if" thoughts, generated by the ego's fear of change, to gain control and keep them in a place of stagnation. The change you experience is created by you, for you. But because we lost so much faith in ourselves, we cannot even trust the change our higher selves is trying to make to benefit us. What in your life would change if fear programming and trauma didn't control your thoughts and actions? What would change in your world around you if you started living your truth? You see, the only changes you will experience are created by you as a reflection of your own freedom.
Now, with this knowledge and clarity, why would you wait one day longer to let that shit go? Why would you want to continue to hold on to lifetimes of trauma? You must be relentless in the pursuit of you. Shine a flashlight into the darkest recesses of your freezer.
I Am available as a level 4 Marconic practitioner to provide you with the Unified Chakra Integration and Quantum Recalibration. Visit my website or the Marconics website to learn more or book an appointment.

Perhaps you’ve been hearing a lot of talk lately about ascension and 5D. There are many people out there who are channeling these messages about ascension, and if you do some research, you will see a lot of common threads and similar information. When you start hearing many different Light Workers sharing the same messages about ascension, it is easy to give credence to what they are saying. Let’s talk a little about channeling, and where this information is coming from. But first, let us define ascension as a shift in both body and consciousness to a higher dimension while keeping our memory intact. This is something that has never been accomplished in mass in our universe. Most planetary ascensions require a death transition, in which case your memory would not be intact as your soul begins anew in a higher dimension.
Now, you may hear many people say they are channeling Archangel Michael, or Commander Ashtar. They may even say they are the incarnate of these beings. Since these beings are multidimensional, it is feasible that they are communicating with many Light Workers simultaneously. And if the information is of extreme importance, they will send it out to many people in hopes that it will spread far and wide. But when you channel, you must filter the information through your own ego, mind, and vocabulary, which means the messages can be skewed to suite the receiver’s agenda. And since these beings operate from a higher dimension, where vocabulary is considered limiting, information is communicated as light language, sacred geometry, frequency, etc., which is open for interpretation.
Let us also consider that as these Light Workers open a channel, they may not have learned the best of discernment, and cannot tell the “Light” from a flash light. There are many beings seeking to manipulate and highjack our ascension, and so come to these Light Workers pretending to be someone or something they are not. There are many people channeling a false Michael or Ashtar. This is meant to steer us off course.
But when you hear many people with the exact same message being channeled, it makes you feel a bit more confident about the information and the source. What if the reason that so many people are receiving the same message is because what they are accessing is a recording from a previous failed ascension cycle? Did you know that this is our seventh and final ascension attempt? Therefore, if the message they are receiving is directions and guidance from a previous failed ascension attempt, a new way must be forged this time. You cannot keep repeating the same actions and expect different results.
These recordings will keep you on a failed ascension time loop. You can see this already if you follow one of these channelers long enough. There is one in particular that I have been following on Facebook for about a year and a half now. His message is the same recording that many others are picking up in reference to the Grand Solar Flash. Not much variation in his message from many others, but he gives dates on when to expect it. At first it was 11/11/2018. We all sat around looking out our window, waiting for this grand event. Nothing. Then the new date was 11/21/2018, then 12/21/2018, then 12/31/2018, then spring equinox 2019, then 11/11/2019. Now it is projected for spring equinox 2020, or 11/11/2020. Can you see the failed ascension time loop playing over and over and over again for him and his followers when each of these uneventful dates comes and goes?
If you do some extensive blog and YouTube research into ascension and the Grand Solar Flash, it starts to take on a rapture type quality. They speak of this grand event that will raise everyone’s vibration and catapult us all into 5D. This includes a blinding bright light, followed by 3 days of darkness as the last bit of lower frequencies within us fall away. This doesn’t resonate with me. In fact, as a child, the rapture never resonated with me either. There was something about the quality of the message that felt wrong in a way that I could not explain. Now I have come to know that the reason this never resonated is because this is not the path that the collective has chosen. Breathe into that for a moment.
We refer to these recordings from a failed ascension time loop as false light. And if you are taken off course by this false light, you are left waiting for an external event to occur to take you into 5D, and you fail to do the work that is necessary. Ascension takes work. It requires mastery. It is not something that can be done for you. Afterall, 5D would just be the same as 3D if it’s filled with souls that have done absolutely nothing to heal their trauma and clear the programming’s of poverty, war, hatred, and fear. So as you wait for this Grand Solar Flash event, precious time is wasting away.
Consider Buddha, Jesus, and Quan Yin. These “Ascended Masters” are highly regarded by the masses for their wisdom, expanded consciousness, and that which they achieved on this planet. They sought mastery and healing. This required the total commitment and dedication. In other words, they had to do the work. But their ascension to 6D and 7D required intervention and assistance.
A large part of the ascension journey is the expansion of consciousness as you become more attuned to all that is, and realize your own god nature. Jesus is one of the most well known examples of this when he remembered his own god nature and claimed his sovereignty as the son of God. Imagine if each soul on this planet remembered that they are a divine beings of light capable of the same powers of creation as God, for we are an extension of God. We would no longer give our powers away. We would no longer allow ourselves to be enslaved. And through our spiritual evolution and experiences over many, many lifetimes, we would honor our own divinity, and that of those around us.
But there are those who fear us fully activating to this level and oppose our potential. And so, the opposition has deliberately distorted our light body to block our expansion of consciousness and our ascension. This is one of the reasons why there have been six failed ascension attempts. And this is why we say intervention is needed to remove the blocks and reconnect us to the unified field. Without the blockages and distortions, your light body would be an immense power house. Your aura and chakras would be gigantic. Without this assistance to return your light body to it’s full potential, you would not be able to achieve ascension within your physical body- it would require a death transition.
DNA activation is also required for ascension to the different dimensions. Our scientists will tell you that there is a lot of “Junk DNA” within us. These are DNA strands that appear to be inactive, and they cannot account for it’s use. You have probably also heard it said we only use 10% of our brain. That “Junk DNA” and unused brain power are meant to be grown into, so to speak. This is also part of the expansion of consciousness we have spoken about. But this too requires assistance and intervention. Without an activation and expansion of light body, you cannot have an activation of DNA. They go hand in hand.
And this is where Marconic Energy gives you this assistance through the Unified Chakra Integration and Quantum Recalibration, as well as other protocols currently in place. It aids in correcting the distortions and clearing the blockages that were designed to prevent your expansion and ascension. The Unified Chakra Integration clears up to 51% of your karma, and takes you off the karmic wheel; important for ascension. The Recalibration restructures your Merkaba from a 3D vehicle to a multidimensional vehicle, and you automatically download and activate the new energies that come through with each ascension wave. We refer to it as waves because if the energy were to hit you all at once like a tsunami (as some suggest The Grand Solar Flash is meant to do), you would quite literally fry.
So as you can see, there are false light narratives that are not telling you about all the work you have to do. You must be an active participant in your ascension. This is not something that will be done for you against your free will. This is a free will universe. You must seek intervention! Help will not be denied to you if you ask for it, but it cannot be forced on you either.
And now, what if I told you that ascension to 5D in this time matrix was not possible, and that 5D was shut down due to galactic warfare that has been playing out for millions of years by those who oppose humans fully activating? Sit with that for a moment. Does this resonate for you? Does this make you want to throw your hands in the air and say why bother? This is but another reason why we have had six failed ascension attempts. But that doesn’t mean that ascension is off the table. It simple means that in order for us to have our ascension in body and consciousness while maintaining our memory, we must be able to exit this matrix and go to another. Marconics is currently the only modality that is restructuring your light body to allow you to exit out of the matrix via the Quantum Recalibration.
At this point, you may have many questions, and they cannot all possibly be answered in a blog or Facebook post. And for this reason, I would highly encourage you to start your own ascension journey by taking a Marconic Energy class. So much information is shared in these classes, and much of what I have shared here I have learned through my Marconic Energy teachers. Furthermore, I have found that the information shared must meet the vibration you are at. Much of what I read, hear and learn now I would not have been able to innerstand 3 years ago prior to my Quantum Recalibration when my vibration was much lower. Higher levels of information require a higher vibration in order to absorb and innerstand.
In the classes you will learn why our ascension window of time is so small based upon the energies currently available to us, and how Marconic Energy accelerates your spiritual growth and development. Please know, I am not saying this is the only path to ascension. But it is the only path I know of that is facilitating rapid clearings and expansion as a multidimensional tool (as compared to other 3D modalities). Please use this link to see the current class schedule, or to learn more about Marconic Energy. https://www.marconics.com/events.html

Some of you may be surprised to find a blog entry on this subject matter on my site. This is not meant to pass judgment, nor is it an attempt to monitor your behavior. My reason for writing this is simply to shine a light on a subject so that the truths and lies behind the matter can be revealed. In the light, nothing can hide, and you can no longer say “I didn’t know”. Sort of like walking through a house of horrors at an amusement park; once the lights come on, you see EVERYTHING.
Once one person brings their awareness to any subject, and shares the information with the collective, all have access to the truth via the unified field and grid. Now, there are many different layers to this subject, and it is multifaceted. But what I wish to speak about here is the enslavement programs and energy siphoning.
Addictions of all sorts are on the rise thanks to that device we carry with us everywhere that gives us instant access to everything. We are obsessed with Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Tinder, online gaming, and porn. The average person will spend 3 hours a day on their phone scrolling. We don’t realize just how much control our phones have over us. It is through this control that we can be dumbed down, and our behaviors and thoughts manipulated. If you can keep the masses distracted, you block their awareness to all that is.
The majority of people who attend SAA (Sex Addicts Anonymous) meetings are there for porn addiction. But they only make up a very small percentage of people who will even admit that they have an addiction, much less seek help. But porn addiction is rampant, and for many, it has degraded their quality of life, and their ability to be present. Many have a hard time now realizing that they should not be engaging in watching this at a Starbucks, on a plane, or any other crowded public place. Some would classify this a intentional lewd behavior, but the reality is the addiction is so strong that their discernment of “the right time and place” is no longer there. And how many times has a parent been on Tinder when they should have been watching their kids?
The scary truth is the entire porn industry, and it’s ease of access anytime and any place, is a very large and well orchestrated machine siphoning our energy to feed a dark matrix. There are dark entities that attach themselves to people and feed off of their energy, making it even harder for them to come up for air and find healing from their addiction. We are being used. Our energy stolen and used to keep us enslaved. It is a built in programming to keep us coming back again and again. That is why so much of it is free now.
And then there is the psychic attacks that take place each time you engage in this. When you are viewing a picture of someone and using them in your fantasy, you create a psychic connection with that person which is draining to them and negatively affecting their energy field. And likewise, they now have access to your energy field. Society will say that this is okay and authorized because the person opened themselves up to this type of psychic attack by allowing their image to be used in such away. This is like saying it is okay to go into someone’s home and vandalize it and steal all their possessions because they left their front door open. We are saying it is okay to take advantage of another if they have made it so easy.
Just because society, in it’s current distortion, says something is okay, does not mean that it is okay. And that is another programming that has been implanted into all of us. We say, ”It’s okay to watch porn, everyone does.” Or, “It’s a guy thing.” These are lies that we have been programmed to believe so that we don’t look closer at how our energy is being used, and how we are being manipulated.
There are those who may only tap into this energy “sometimes”. But you must pay attention to the drop in your vibration each time you tap into this. Do you really want to drop into that density, even for a few minutes? If you are working towards your ascension, why would you intentionally engage in something that will not only feed off your energy, but will also lower your vibration?
Imagine what you would do with all that time on your hands if you weren’t engaged in that lower vibrational distraction or glued to your phone? What could you accomplish if you were mentally and emotionally present? How would your relationships improve? Imagine all that you would see of the truths of this world with clear eyes? The powers that be are terrified of you looking up from your phone to see what was really happening all around you.
The porn industry has taken the intimacy out of our sexual experiences and relationships. We engage in it more to scratch an itch, rather than to truly revel in the beauty and sacredness of each other. The sexual revolution was important and necessary to our culture. It helped to free us of the control society, government, and the church had over our bodies. But we handed that control over to another power rather than standing in our integrity and sacredness. We can no longer be naked as a celebration of the beautiful human body without it being sexualized.
Some will say that mental sexual stimulation is just as important as the physical, and that is the role that porn helps support. But as we advance into 5D, there needs to be a shift and change in what that mental sexual stimulation is, with an awareness of how our energy is being used and directed.
We must be willing to see these things for the truth of what they are. We can no longer be blind, or allow false programming to manipulate us into believing something is acceptable. And this applies to all areas of our lives. The next time someone tells you something is the “societal norm” or “that’s just how it is”, question the program. We once said it was the societal norm and acceptable to have slaves… And now we are the slaves.

I am hearing from many Light Workers that they are suddenly plunged into darkness, depression, or hopelessness. They feel “stuck”, or suicidal. They are aware that we are on the precipice of a great ascension, so why do they feel so lost right now? It is so easy from this place to beat yourself up for allowing your vibration to sink so low, or go back to sleep all together.
It is important for you to know that there are those who oppose ascension. Our galactic friends and allies have eradicated many of these beings who oppose us, but there is still plenty of opposition that we the incarnates must face and deal with ourselves. And in doing so, we are able to take away their power, and learn and grow ourselves.
For many Light Workers and those reading this, we have already exited 3D and are now in the 4D corridor. You may still be very aware of all the drama that is in the 3D world, but it is like seeing it through a glass window. It is for this reason that many do not realize they have already begun to ascend. Don’t open that window and try to reengage with the 3D world just because you can see it. The higher you rise up the 4D corridor to 5D, the less you will perceive of that 3D world.
So yes! You have already begun to ascend! Did you think it would be all bliss and love and that we would be leaving duality behind? Did you ever consider that many of the beings we do not see or perceive are higher dimensional beings, and not all of them are love and light? There are many dimensional levels between here and Source, and so while getting to 5D is a great accomplishment, it is still a low dimension in the grand scheme of things, and there are many more to go before we reach a state of Source purity. And we cannot grow and expand into those higher dimensions without others creating duality and opposition for us.
But the struggle is real now. Yes, you are being attacked. There are those who do not want us to ascend, or do not think we are worthy or ready. And to prove that point, they are attacking us full force, in hopes that we will go back to sleep, or sink back down into third density. And the opposition has had an easy time of it- like shooting fish in a barrel. We must realize that we are being energetically manipulated and attacked.
It seems to be a three pronged approach in their attacks. It is important for you to see this, and know how to face it. You must be aware when emotions or thoughts that come up seem more destructive in nature, and know if this is authentic or manipulation. Authentic Destruction is when we real-eyes that something no longer serves us and it is time to let go. Manipulative Destruction makes you want to throw away all you’ve worked so hard towards in your growth, ascension, and mission. If you are uncertain which you are dealing with, check in with your higher self or I AM at Source. But below are a few red flags to help you identify the tactics and programs being used.
Feeling Stuck – This particular program is quite destructive. We are focused on ascension and suddenly feel stuck, as if we cannot move forward or raise our vibration any higher. This triggers fear frequency, which lowers our vibration even more. We feel unworthy or uncertain of our ascension. But this “Stuck” program can manipulate us in other ways as well. We can feel stuck in our relationships, and then set about destroying something that was not meant to be destroyed. We can feel stuck in our work or home situation, causing us to panic and force things into being, or tear things apart. We can feel stuck in our physical body, not seeing a release or healing of a sickness or disease. This “Stuck” program triggers fear, anxiety, and panic, throwing us into a tailspin. As I said above, Authentic Destruction is good and necessary. But you must be able to tell the difference between that which is authentic, and that which is a manipulation. Once you have determined that what you are feeling is a manipulation, you can release the programming and set yourself free to continue along your authentic path of growth and expansion.
Suicide Program - As you raise your vibration and ascend, those who resonate with you are able to rise as well through entrainment. But if you are not there, who will your friends and family entrain with to go higher? Yes, Light Worker, you are the pathfinder and leader for others. They are able to follow in your wake. But if you are not there to light the way, will those your soul has been working with be able to find their way on their own? Take out one Light Worker, you possibly stop ascension for a few other souls as well.
So many Light Workers have been reaching out to me because they feel a sudden onslaught of suicidal thoughts. Thoughts are programs that play over and over in your mind, and if you have ever had suicidal thoughts, you know that the thoughts seem to play on a never ending loop, like a program. If these thoughts seem to have popped up out of nowhere one day, consider that they are implanted programs. You are sovereign, a power house! Stand in your power and take command of the programs running through your physical, subtle, and energetic bodies. Recognize the manipulation and command that any such programs be canceled and deleted immediately and permanently.
And as a side note, for those who think that if they commit suicide they will ascend in the death transition, this is a fallacy. You will have to start your ascension process all over again. I don’t know about you, but I did not come this far just to start back at zero.
Depression – Depression comes in many forms and can affect each of us differently. But this too, is a program. One thought or idea circles around and around, in a never ending loop, to keep us in a state of depression. But how can a person with such a high vibration be depressed? Consider that you are not really depressed. As the ascension waves wash over us, lifetimes of traumas are being released from our cellular memory. We may find ourselves in bed sobbing uncontrollably. And in this moment of deep pain release, we are poked and prodded into thinking we are depressed as we try to identify with each emotion that comes to the surface for release. We simply cannot understand the root cause of each tear we shed because the pain we are releasing may not be from this lifetime. We do not need to associate with it or identify with it. We only need to release it. So, rather than saying “I AM depressed”, say “I AM releasing”. For you are that which you say you are.
As soon as you recognize that what you are experiencing is a manipulation or implanted program, most of it’s power is limited. But you must then stand in your power and claim complete control of your mind, body, and soul. You must command that these programs be deleted immediately and permanently. You must sever and cut any illegal or unauthorized connections to any being or entity that has not been sanctioned by you at Source.
There are those who will tell you to dim your light so that these opposing forces will not see you as a threat and attack you. Bull shit! I refuse to dim my light for any reason whatsoever. I will, however, properly shield myself from attack, and bind from me any being that would oppose me at Source. You see, you have complete power, but only if you choose to stand in that power and wield it. If you will not take full control of your physical, subtle, and energetic bodies, then you leave yourself open. This is why it is so important to cut, clear, and shield yourself at least morning at night. But depending on where your day takes you, you may need to cut, clear, and shield yourself multiple times a day.
My fellow Light Workers, we have come so far. Mastery and Sovereignty are needed in order to make this final jump. Do not go back to sleep now! Perhaps if we called ourselves LIGHT WARRIORS instead, we would inner-stand that we must fight for our liberation. We must be the heart centered warrior.
I hold so much love for each of you in my heart, and thank you for all that you have done.
We’ve all experienced “Bad Guys” in our personal lives. When these men or women initially come into your life, you don’t immediately know what role they are going to play. After all, I can’t think of the last time I saw a “Bad Guy” wearing a black hat and a gun on their hip, challenging me to a duel at dawn. I’m not really sure how I would even respond to that. I could only hope that there was someone else there to witness it, because I doubt anyone would believe me when I told the story.
The “Bad Guys” I am referring to are the ones who bring destruction into your life. And where there is destruction, there is always pain. So we blame these people as being the cause of our pain. After all, if they hadn’t pulled whatever shenanigan that brought the shit storm into our lives, we never would have been hurt. So, the words “Bad Guy” and “Destruction” carry with them a lot of judgement. You simply cannot say these words without having a compulsive flinch inside.
Now, what if I told you that these bad guys are doing you a favor? They are fulfilling a soul contract that they have with you. Your soul called out, needing help from another to trigger an awakening, a release, a rebirth, or a transformation. And with great love for you, these souls stepped forward and said “Your growth is of the upmost importance to the collective. I will help you by playing this role in your life.”
At this point, you are probably thinking of the one person or event that hurt you the most, and your saying BULL SHIT! It’s okay to have that reaction. It is an indication that either you have not healed yet, your still learning or processing the situation, or a shift in your perspective of the situation as a whole is needed. More often than not, it can mean that you failed to learn the lesson. If you are unable to learn from the lesson, and let it transform you as it was designed to do, then it becomes something that festers. You can let the injury become your obsession, your life story; or you can turn it into your phoenix rising moment.
I am reminded of an lovely soul who worked twenty years in one career, for the same company. She feels the pressure mounting deep inside to leave that job, but her attempts to find a job along the same career path goes nowhere. So she lingers at a place that no longer serves her for three more years, because she is too afraid to chase her heart’s truest desires. Then people within the office start creating trouble for her- gossiping behind her back, creating a lynch mob of coworkers that no longer respect her. Suddenly, nothing she does is good enough, everything she does or says gets manipulated to make her look bad, and anonyms calls are made to a hotline to report her. After twenty years of loyal service, she is terminated. And with this new found freedom, she realizes that she doesn’t want another job within the same career field. She finally starts to listen to her heart, and takes a chance on letting the world see the version of her that she felt she had to hide in order to function within the corporate world. Her life transforms in magnificent ways, and she feels alive for the first time. Would it have been more graceful if she had taken that leap of faith herself three years ago instead of being pushed? Of course! But thank God for those “Bad Guys” who gave her the push. It was the greatest gift anyone has ever given her. These were not bad people. They were simply playing a part that she needed them to play. Soul contract fulfilled.
Trauma in our most intimate relationships also tend to be an opportunity for growth and transformation. Think of the woman who was cheated on her whole marriage, verbally and emotionally abused, and domineered. Once she takes off the blinders, and the full truth is revealed to her, the destruction begins. Up until that point, she believed everything was fine, and any harsh words she received were justified. She may have even believed that a "failed marriage" would make her a failure, and that she would be to blame. But once the destruction of these programs begins within her psyche, an extraordinary women is revealed as she allows the situation to completely transform her. She not only reclaims her power, she becomes the most kickass women you’ve ever seen. She stretches and expands, learns so much about herself, and commands dignity and respect. This new version of her was not a possibility had she never experienced such great pain. And when she no longer looks at their ex as a bad guy, and can thank him for the part that he played in her transformation, she powers up to a whole new level of Goddess.
I look back on my own life and see how beautifully this has played out time and again. In some ways, our lives can be seen as a road map. Our personal guides are working behind the scenes, looking at this map for reference. They are saying “Okay, at this point in her life, she should be here. And at this point, she should be ready for an awakening.” Please know, YOU MADE THE ROAD MAP! Your guides are just following the orders you set down when coming here. You said “Do whatever it takes to make sure I stay on course.” Each time my team felt I was ready for my next major transformation, it was always proceeded by a “Bad Guy”, and then destruction. Destruction is so important, because it creates the room for rebirth. It helps us to let go of something in our lives that was blocking our growth, be it a job, a relationship, or a belief. It’s amazing to me how many times the heart of the lesson is letting go of old programming.
There is great freedom and liberation in realizing that these people who brought about the destruction were only playing a role. It was a role that was designed to help you. And you will find that different people will keep coming into your life to play the same part until the lesson is learned. But it is not the events that should define us and become our life story. It is the change within us that these events lead to that define us. It is the awakening, the heart activation, the realization of our worth and all that we are capable of. It is the push that gets you on the path that was meant for you, and all that you will discover about yourself once you are on that path.
Some lessons are so large, they can take a lifetime to process and learn from. Some people have experienced horrors and abuse that we could never fathom. Other lessons seem to take forever to heal, because we stubbornly refuse to do what we know we must in order to forgive and move on. But it is important to know where you are on that path to healing. Take a moment to reflect on the “Bad Guys” in your life. Call them and the situation to mind. Breathe. Do you feel:
A) Anger or pain?
B) No anger or pain, but I’m not ready to forgive them.
C) I have forgiven them, and moved on with my life.
D) Appreciation for the part they played in my life. There is nothing to forgive.
Reread C and D. “I have forgiven them” vs. “There is nothing to forgive.” So, if there is nothing to forgive, then why must I forgive? Good question. Forgiveness is so very important in healing. It helps release all the energy within you that holds on to the pain this person caused in your life. But as your cosmic awareness and God consciousness expands, you realize there is nothing to forgive – instead you feel gratitude for their assistance in your growth. You appreciate the role they played in your life. You have now made that cosmic jump, where the words “Bad Guy” and “Destruction” no longer carry any pain or judgment.
This shift in awareness is crucial going forward as things begin to play out. You will see great destruction all around you, be it from our institutions, economy, politicians, or natural disasters. Can you look at the destruction that these forces are bringing into the lives of many without saying “This is so bad”? Can you be the compassionate observer to the destruction? This is not to say you must be passive in every situation. At times, you will feel like the destroyer yourself, as you deconstruct every aspect of your life (before another must come in and do it for you). It requires faith, trust, and non attachment. There is a time for you to be the creator, and a time for you to be the destroyer, for both are part of your nature. Knowing which power to wield in any given moment is true mastery.

Not every soul wants healing. Let that sink in for a moment. It’s a belief altering statement. It is easy to understand an incarnate, with his or her limited awareness and spiritual development, not wanting healing. After all, our addictions and vices of the flesh are so enticing. Be it drugs, alcohol, greed, or power- we just don’t want to let it go. But when we think of a soul, we think of a consciousness that is connected to Source, wise, and living out these human experiences as part of their own growth, and with the intention and desire to heal and grow. But that is not always the case.
Think of the person who refuses to see their pattern of behavior, and continues to play the victim as a form of emotional manipulation. You can speak to them logically, point out that their reality and suffering are a direct product of their actions and limited beliefs, and they will cover their ears and eyes. They do not want to hear or see the truth. We assume that it is the incarnate ego who resists taking ownership of their lives. Surely the soul wants to help shed this ego trap! Perhaps not.
If you have an energy healing practice, you may have had souls who have sought out your help, but refused to do the work necessary to help themselves. They become an energy vampire, crying to you about their lives, and no matter how much you work with them, their lives are still a shit storm. They want you to “fix” them, but ignore everything you say. And so they hop from one energy healer to the next, like a junkie looking for their next fix. And your left doubting yourself. Did I fail them?
Many social workers deal with people like this on a daily basis. They go into this line of work with a strong desire and will to help the less fortunate, the homeless, or the mentally unstable. They try to remove people from dangerous situations, or provide them with the tools and resources they need to support themselves. But quite often they find that even if they took a person off the street, gave them a safe place to live, food, clothes, and a job, that same person will be back on the streets within six months. Now, obviously, this isn’t always the case, and for some people, they are able to make a real and lasting difference in their life’s. But for many, it is a pattern they don’t want to change. And so, many social workers get burnt out very quickly, their optimism and idealism deserts them, and their hope in humanity falters.
Light Workers also struggle with idealism vs. reality. We start off believing that we will rise together as a whole. Peace, love, and illumination for all is our mission. We believed in the 51% rule – if 51% of the population went to the light, it would create a tipping point that would raise everyone to the light. While in theory, this make sense due to resonance (if 2 people are vibrating at different frequencies, the lower frequency will rise to match the higher frequency), but 51% of the population is a very large number. When we look at what is happening in the world, it seems impossible.
Then there is the Quan Yin syndrome. The beautiful soul that is Quan Yin, as well as many others, has made it their mission to stay with this planet until each and every last soul comes into the light. And we as Light Workers believed that was not only the mission for all of us, but in our naivety we also believed it was a possibility. We believed that we must stay in the lower vibrations to assist and bring everyone to the light. And so we channel the love and light of Source to the planet to help raise the vibration of all the souls. But this is a free will universe, and you cannot force feed someone light and love. You cannot force healing on them. So why choose to stay in the lower vibrations with souls that do not wish to ascend?
For even a half way mentally healthy person, it can be hard to understand that someone may not want healing. We see souls that are truly tormented and disturbed. Their suffering is great. How can anyone assume that they have chosen this? But in most cases, their soul did choose this. Sometimes their soul chose it as part of the learning and evolution, in hopes that the incarnate will rise above. But other times, the soul chooses this as their permanent stagnation. It is not to be judged as right or wrong, good or bad. We can look at these souls with great compassion and love, but know that it is not our responsibility to “fix” them. Can you honor their choice?
And this is where some Light Workers go back to sleep. They look around at all that is happening, feel that they have not made a difference, and become disillusioned. But the idea that we are here to save everyone was the illusion. Other Light Workers cleaned up the earth energies with their bodies, absorbing the toxicity, and turning it into cancer within their bodies. This does not work very well either. So, if we are not here to clean up this shit energy, and not all souls want saving, what the hell are we doing here? It’s that moment when you either throw in the towel, or expand your consciousness to the truth of who you are and your true mission.
We did not come here to fix your governments, your education systems, your religions, or your wars. These things cannot be “fixed” so long as we are giving the power to souls who do not want healing. We have seen this play out on a world wide stage. We pushed against the system for 100 years, demanding our rights and freedoms, just to find that all progress can be swiftly erased each time there is a change in powers in our government’s. A soul who has healed and realized the God love and consciousness that is their true nature could never wage war against another, drop bombs on homes, or seek to take control of another. This 3D earth will come to it’s natural end, and along with it, all of your broken institutions, and the souls who chose not to evolve. IT IS A CHOICE!!!
Now, each Light Worker’s mission is different. And yes, some have chosen to go down with the ship. After the fall, they will be the ones who stay onboard to help with a last chance awakening before the final curtain is drawn. Some are working in the trenches, where they must maintain low and dense vibrations in order to fulfill their mission as activists or protectors. And to these souls, we thank them for the work they are doing. Their ascension to 5D will be upon death.
But what started as an awaking for many Light Workers in 2012, has grown into something much larger now. As ascension waves have been washing over us, another AWAKENING is taking place. We are stepping into the truths that we have been teaching for the past 6 years. We are claiming our sovereignty, and then living it. We are AWAKENING to the fullness of who we really are. Once you awaken to these truths, activate and embrace them, you begin to rapidly shed your old 3D programming. What you are achieving in your own healing, and expansion of God consciousness and love, is extraordinary. And it is from this point of expanded consciousness that you realize you are not here to clean up this mess. You are here to show others the way out. Your mission is ascension. Your mission is you. This is everything.

When was the last time you played Life, Monopoly, or Risk? These are common board games that we all grew up with, and we seldom play them as adults. I played all three recently with my niece and nephew, and saw the programs they instill within us from a new light.
Of these three games, two of them are monetary based, while the third one is based on conquering nations by invasion. And I think the monetary ones cause the most upset in the house every time we play them. Inevitably, someone is going to be curled up in a ball under the table crying. But it is how we react to these games that gives us some insight into our perceptions of life.
I had not played Life in years, and only a few times as a child, so I really didn’t know what to expect when we pulled the game out last night. At the start of the game, you have to choose if you are going to college, or pursuing a career. If you choose college, you automatically incur a $100K debt at the beginning of the game, but you’ll have a higher income throughout the game. Different mandatory stops along the way force you to get married, buy a house, and later buy a bigger house. There’s no escaping it or getting around it (I do believe those were the exact words Al used when he proposed to me), thereby planting beliefs that you must do these things in real life. I even saw myself succumb to the trappings of the game when I had to choose a starter home, and took time to deliberately select a house that met my personal tastes and fit my budget. In doing this, I discarded the cheapest house, the motor home. I realized I had done so from a place of ego. I didn’t want my home to be a motor home, even in a game. This is very telling on a personal level since I currently live in a RV. But the fact that it came up in a game was astonishing to me, especially when it was all carried out on a subconscious level and I didn't realize what I had done until much later.
My nephew was beside himself and crying when his mom kept taking $100K from him every time she landed on the Lawsuit square. We explained to him that she kept taking it from him because he had the most money and can afford it. Had she taken it from one of the other players, they would have been kicked out of the game because no one else had enough money. But he was so distraught at what felt like being picked on, and losing all that money. It doesn’t matter that the money wasn’t real. There was an emotional attachment to that money. Once we got him out from under the table, and gave him lots of hugs and kisses, he spun again, and in the blink of an eye made back $300K and was all smiles, telling us how rich he is (my nephew is 8).
The game ends with you selling your home, paying off your debts, and then moving into a retirement home. You all know how I feel about that word “retire” from my last blog post. Then you count all of your money, and whoever has the most wins. So many horrible beliefs and ideas about life planted! The person with the most money upon death is not the winner in life. But we act like it’s true.
At the end, I asked my nephew what he learned from the game, and he responded “Life is hard”. We all laughed, but I hate for him to have this perception that this is what life is or must be. I tried to explain that we shouldn’t have emotional attachment to money. It comes and goes so quickly. You can always make more. I wish I could make them see that you don’t have to follow the rules society has set down. You don’t need to get married and have kids. You don’t have to buy a larger house. You don’t have to move to a retirement home. You can choose your own path, or create a new path.
Monopoly is another game that gets us all very emotional. It can take hours to get to the point where you have a true winner, so you usually call it quits at some point and count all the money to declare a winner. But we recently played to the very end twice, and this is how that usually plays out: Everyone tries to get a monopoly, and builds houses, and then hotels, so they can keep raising the rent higher and higher and collecting money. You have to do this because your neighbors are doing it, and if you land on their spaces, you cannot afford the rent unless you are collecting high rents too. So we are all charging high rents, and paying high rents. Inflation is ridiculous. One by one, players drop out as they land on a space with a hotel before someone lands on one of their spaces to help them supplement their income. Kids are crying as they are selling all their properties to try to stay in the game. Then there are only two players left. I felt like a monster telling my niece that she owes me $2,000 for landing on my Park Place with a hotel, knowing that it would wipe her out of the game. So in the end, you have someone who owns everything, but now no one can afford to buy their products. And the person with the most money in the end wins. Wins what? We’re all emotional and crying. I sure don’t feel like a winner.
Again, we’re all emotionally attached to fake money and fake possessions. And now we’ve taught the children how to price gouge.
And then there’s Risk. A game in which we teach our children that you only win if you invade another nation. While my niece and I try to expand peacefully, her father is attaching and invading our land, because the point of the game is to win. My niece is crying when her capital is taken. You do feel as if you are being attacked, and when you ask why, the answer is because you must attack to win.
Is it any surprise that my generation grew up to be consumed by corporate greed, and people who are profiting from warfare? We teach it to our children at such a young age. And don’t even get me started on the video games where the theme is kill, kill, kill.
But there is hope. Many new games I see, such as Concept, teach youth to think and see things differently, and encourage them to find new means of expression. They tend to be more educational, and don’t have winners and losers. Perhaps in this way, the programs from the old paradigms will be slowly eliminated.
